* NeverLiveItDown: Luke's "attraction" to Leia is confined mostly to this film and ''Splinter of the Mind's Eye'' and never goes anywhere, but in the eye of popular culture he will always be the butt of incest jokes. It's not helped by the fact that, in the film as shot, they aren't supposed to ''be'' related.

** The FightSceneFailure between Vader and Obi-Wan became more hilarious as in ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' [[RuleOfCool they fought with all sort of flips over a fiery river of lava, collapsing buildings, swung on cables through the air and stuff]]. Looks like they don't age so well between the two films.[[note]]Obi-Wan ''did'' age faster due to living in the desert planet, making him YoungerThanHeLooks. In Vader's case, his cybernetic suit and artificial limbs pretty much prevent him from doing too much acrobatic moves anymore.[[note]]

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: People have noted that the Death Star gunner lingered on Yavin IV despite having a firing solution for some time. ("Stand by.... Stand by....") They believed that the gunner might have had an attack of conscience and was deliberately delaying in the off-chance that someone might stop him from destroying the Rebel base. This interpretation has even became canon in the Legends universe.
* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Multiple studios turned the film proposal down and most of the management of TwentiethCenturyFox outside of Alan Ladd Jr. thought it would be a final embarrassment before Fox closed its doors. Even Creator/GeorgeLucas' director's guild thought it was going to bomb, which was the only reason they let him release it [[ValuesDissonance without any opening credits]]. After the film exploded into the public consciousness, everyone else changed their tune saying this film was the kind of unorthodox creative dare that company founder, Daryl Zanuck, often won big with.

** After Rogue One's ending, Leia's "Diplomatic mission" excuse gets even funnier when you realise she's running it against a guy who literally just saw her ship escape from a massive space battle 5 minutes ago but can't actually call her on it because her explanation technically holds up.

** Back in the day, in Latin America, R2-D2 was sometimes referred as "Arturito" (Little Arthur), because of the similar pronunciation with "Artoo-Deetoo", and it became quite popular.

** The infamous shot of a stormtrooper hitting his head on a door (when the troopers enter the station in which Artoo and 3PO are hiding), was pretty amusing for audiences, even receiving an audible "clunk" sound in the special edition. The actor ended up with severe head injuries for his trouble.

** After watching the prequels, seeing Vader so callously shoot R2 with a ''TIE Fighter blast'' makes him seem all the more cruel. He might not have known it was R2 or even aiming for him but it still jerks a tear.
